By MacRumors Staff
Jon Prosser has hosted the YouTube channel Front Page Tech since 2013. For several years, he was best known for sharing Android-related leaks, but he has more recently dived into Apple rumors.

Prosser has a mixed track record so far with Apple rumors. He was correct about both a second-generation iPhone SE being announced on April 15, 2020 and the 13-inch MacBook Pro being refreshed on May 4, 2020, but he has also shared a fair amount of incorrect information, including iOS switching back to iPhoneOS branding, the new iPhone SE having the same rear camera system as the iPhone XR, and fake images of an AirPower-like wireless charging mat.
